Moderator edit user: change email field from "disabled" to "readonly"

#1
This is small, simple little HTML change, but I think it is worth it.

Currently in Firefox, a moderator, in the Edit User page, can't copy a user's email address.

So change:
<input name="email" value="somebody@hotmail.com" class="textCtrl" disabled="disabled" type="text">

to:
<input name="email" value="somebody@hotmail.com" class="textCtrl" readonly type="text">

Then a moderator can select and copy it. It will still not be editable, of course.

Hope this helps!

(Yes, yes, the workaround of Inspect Element works fine if you are technically sophisticated.)

Is this the "edit member" page? We don't actually display the email, so that may be an add-on.
